Is subject to call in?: No
The Executive considered a report seeking the approval of the draft Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for public consultation.
In reply to a Member’s question regarding the balance between developer and community interests in the operation of the SPD, the Principal Planning Officer stated that the Council invariably collected developer contributions on behalf of other infrastructure providers (such as the County Council). It would therefore be imperative that these providers robustly evidenced/justified their requirements to developers in seeking financial contributions.
It was RESOLVED:
1. That the content of the draft Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) be noted.
2. That delegated powers be granted to the Assistant Director (Planning & Regulation), following consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Environment & Regeneration, to make minor amendments as are necessary in the final preparation of the draft SPD prior to its consultation.
3. That the draft Developer Contributions SPD be published for consultation from 30 November 2020 to 25 January 2021.
Reason for Decision: As contained in report.
Other Options considered: As contained in report.
